    I got this by using both the "boost color" and "fade color" at the same time. These are only screen grabs of a doc I shot in Sturgis, so the resolution isn't the best. What do you guys(and girls) think of the look?

    btw, that is Joe and Marcelo of Dog Leg Preacher.

    Here is a link to the whole set of screen grabs if your interested:

    I like the effect, very gritty. The 1st is maybe slightly dark, there's a lot of detail lost around the mouth.

    Couldn't the same effect be achieved by simply darkening and desaturating?

    It comes close, but it isn't quite as dark and gritty. Of course I'm just screwing around in iPhoto, I've yet to bust out photoshop for this.

    pretty good from what i understand iphoto is lacking but i dont really want to post-process yet.. still working on getting great shots.. =)

    the first edit is better i think except for it losing image and getting black around the right side, but that might contribute to it, im not entirely sure (im a n00b)
